The Cornerstone Project


Cornerstone Project gifts are used to restore our beloved, historic building. Begun in 2002 and headed by retired local physician Dr. Dan O’Keeffe, the Cornerstone Project gratefully welcomes gifts of all sizes and offers naming opportunities to individuals, families, classes, foundations, and businesses donating $12,500 or more.

Generous Cornerstone givers have donated more than $1,200,000 to renovate many parts of the school, providing a new generation of students with a brighter, warmer, more efficient, comfortable and up-to-date building.

The Robert J. Nolan Gymnasium, for example, is once again a proud home court for the Kerry Blue basketball teams. The Msgr. Daniel Curtin Science Lab houses equipment for a high-school level Regents biology class for eighth-graders. In the Thomas V. and Elizabeth E. Meath Clay Studio, children nurture their creativity molding figurines and throwing pots. And the Elizabeth Doyle Playground is now a lush green lawn — the best field around for kickball and freeze tag.
